tv America This Morning ABC September 27, 2016 4:00am-4:31am PDT
making news in america this morning, the presidential candidates go toe-to-toe for the first time. >> trading blows on several issues from the economy. >> i will bring back jobs. you can't bring back jobs. >> well, actually, i have thought about this quite a bit. >> to national security. >> at least i have a plan to fight isis. >> no, no, you're telling the enemy everything you want to do. >> this morning, the topic trump says he stopped himself from bringing up, plus, what voters are saying about the historic showdown. >> full coverage and analysis start now. a good tuesday morning. we begin with the biggest night so far in the race for the white house. >> donald trump and hillary clinton clashing over and over
again in their first debate looking to rattle each other on several things from e-mails to tax returns. abc's stephanie ramos is at hofstra university on long island, new york, where it all went down. stephanie, good morning. >> reporter: kendis and diane, good morning. this may have been the highest rated reality show ever. hillary clinton and donald trump disagreeing over race, jobs, terrorism and temperament. the candidates, hillary clinton and donald trump, walking out on the debate stage shaking hands and taking a fighting stance. their first general election face-off turning contentious and personal quick. >> i have a feeling that by the end of this evening, i'm going to be blamed for everything that's ever happened. >> why not. >> why not, yeah, why not. >> reporter: it was a spirited debate full of interruptions. >> donald, i know you live in your own reality but that is not the facts. >> but you have no plan. >> oh, i do. >> reporter: slamming each other on issues like climate change, trade, to stop and frisk.
>> the argument, it's a form of racial profileing. >> no, the argument is that we have to take the guns away from these people that have them and that are bad people that shouldn't have them. >> stop and frisk was found to be unconstitutional and in part because it was ineffective. >> reporter: trump continuing to blast clinton on her stamina and strength but clinton shutting down that line of attack. >> well, as soon as he travels to 112 countries and negotiates a peace deal, a cease-fire, a release of dissidents, an opening of new opportunities and nations around the world or even spends 11 hours testifying in front of a congressional committee, he can talk to me about stamina. >> reporter: this marked the first time both clinton and trump shared the same stage side by side as they try to prove to voters they're the best person to lead the country. >> you decided to stay home and that's okay. >> i think donald just criticized me for preparing for
this debate, and, yes, i did, and you know what else i prepared for, i prepared to be president, and i think that's a good thing. [ applause ] >> reporter: one debate down and two more to go. the second presidential debate between hillary clinton and donald trump is set for october 9th in st. louis, missouri. kendis, diane. >> and, stephanie, what were the campaigns saying after the debate in the spin room? >> reporter: so right after the debate some campaign aides for the clinton camp came into the spin room and they were not holding back on how they thought the debate went last night saying that donald trump was unhinged. they called him unhinged during the debate and they also said that he was easily provoked as well as totally unprepared. senior campaign officials felt trump was quickly rattled, even more than they expected him to be. >> and normally you have those
campaign aides who are there in the spin room, not normally that you have a presidential candidate himself, but trump talked about what he said he didn't address on stage right there in the spin room. what's that all about? >> reporter: yeah, kendis, and you said it. this is something we haven't seen before, but it's been an unconventional convention. donald trump walking into the spin room last night and telling abc news he didn't bring up bill clinton's infidelities because he says chelsea clinton was in the debate hall last night. but here's what trump had to say last night in the spin room right after the debate. here it is. >> i thought it was great. i mean, i got everything i wanted to say, i got it out other than the transgressions of bill because, you know, she takes all these commercials spending literally hundreds of millions of dollars on commercials and they're lies. they're lies. but i thought -- and i didn't want to do it with chelsea who i think is a very wonderful young lady. i didn't want to say what i was going to say with chelsea in the room. >> reporter: unclear if a sign that trump -- about how trump felt he did last night, a
scheduled gop victory party that he was supposed to go to last night he opted out of. back over to you, guys. >> oh, well, that's pretty controversial there, and hillary clinton did go to a rally right afterwards. stephanie ramos in hampstead, new york, this morning. stephanie, thank you. and early polls do indicate that most voters believe hillary clinton won that debate. >> but reaction was mixed across the country with many people sticking with the same candidate that they supported ahead of the debate. >> it's obvious that hillary won that debate. i think that trump was a liar and a person that is trying to divide this country. >> unfortunately, i thought she was very robotic. donald was very appealing, a man of action, real, definitely came across as a change agent. >> flat out she won. i mean, unbelievable. trump had everything to say wrong. he was so nervous, he was scripted. he wasn't as talented as he said he was. >> the reaction from many voters who watched the debate but those people already had the
candidates that they wanted going into it, and as you saw there in stephanie's piece from the beginning trump and clinton dropped the pleasantries and came out swinging. >> so just how did each candidate fare according to the analysts? well, for more on that, let's turn to abc news political director rick klein. rick. >> diane and kendis, a tale of two donald trumps. in the first half of the debate, he was able to parry the attacks from hillary clinton and turn them back on her, make it about the broader argument around the status quo turning all of her attacks into an attack on the political establishment. that was the good side from donald trump's perspective. the bad side coming out later in the debate when she's -- he ends up feuding with her over her fitness for the office, her look for the office, and just, generally speaking, you saw a candidate for whom is able to get under the skin. and i think hillary clinton is able to walk away from this debate saying i know where the weak spots are. i know how to prosecute the case. donald trump on particularly shaky ground when he talked about the birther movement or when he talked about
what he said in the past about the iraq war, a false claim that he always opposed the iraq war. those are things that get played over and over again. i think two candidates showing that they know how to prosecute the case. no one, though, closing the deal. diane and kendis. >> all right, our thanks to rick klein there. well, hillary clinton is calling the debate an amazing experience. >> shortly after getting off the stage, she stopped by a nearby debate watch party with her husband greeting more than 500 supporters with her hands in the air. >> now, clinton is campaigning in raleigh, north carolina, today, and this evening donald trump holds a rally in melbourne, florida. >> and he's also touting his own performance on social media as well. meanwhile, there was another presidential candidate not at the debate. that was green party's dr. jill stein. she was escorted actually off hofstra's campus for not having the right security credentials. stein then took to twitter to get her message out. >> now, stephanie kind of mentioned earlier that clinton and trump's second debate is on sunday, october 9th. the vice presidential debate is october 4th. >> and stay tuned for "good morning america" for analysis of last night's showdown from our full political team.
coming up, some of the morning's other news including new developments in the case that sparked days of protests in charlotte. and the flood emergency in iowa. residents bracing for the worst as swollen rivers approach their crest today. and the miami marlins remember their late teammate jose fernandez. emotional scenes from last night's game coming up.
i think you find a new perspective on life. hi. red cross put us in a hotel so we were able to stay together. we're strong and, if we overcame that or if we can overcome that, we can overcome anything, so. [ sniffle ] it is a tense morning in cedar rapids, iowa. the cedar river is expected to crest this afternoon at 23 1/2 feet. the second highest in the city's history. the downtown area all but deserted in anticipation of widespread flooding. the mayor says this is crunch time in cedar rapids because the next 48 hours are the most
critical. a man described as a disgruntled lawyer is blamed for the gunfire at a houston strip mall that wounded nine people. 46-year-old suspect nathan desai was shot and killed at the scene. detectives say he was wearing military style clothing and had two weapons, along with nearly 2,600 rounds of live ammunition. six people were hit by gunfire. three were hurt by shattered glass. one of those victims is in critical condition. and the suspect in the deadly shooting at a mall in washington state is being held on $2 million bail. yesterday arcan cetin admitted in court that he killed five people at a macy's north of seattle. the 20-year-old now faces five counts of first degree premeditated murder in last week's tragedy, and three other victims were treated and released. there is new information in the aftermath of the shooting of keith scott in north carolina. police say scott was holding a stolen gun when officers shot and killed him. our abc station in charlotte says the person who stole the weapon sold scott that gun. in the meantime, there is word scott's wife filed an order of protection against him last year.
that order reportedly claimed he threatened his wife and child with a gun. and it was an emotional night at marlins park in miami. the team's first game since the death of pitcher jose fernandez and every marlins player wore his jersey. the team owner says no one will ever wear that number again. >> and second baseman dee gordon led off the first inning with a home run. he cried all the way around the bases. take a look. now, after the marlins beat the mets 7-3 the players and coaches gathered around the mound and tossed their hats onto it. >> such an emotional game. when we come back, hot, dry conditions in a fast-moving wildfire have hundreds of california homes in danger. and more on last night's debate. we're fact checking some of what donald trump and hillary clinton had to say. stay with us. this is my body of proof. proof of less joint pain. and clearer skin.

fast-moving wildfire in northern california. that fire has burned hundreds of acres in the santa cruz mountains and is only 5% contained. the smoke and flames are visible for miles. hundreds of homes are threatened by the fire and those residents have been ordered to evacuate. a structure fire may have started that wildfire. and the high temperatures in california will keep both the brush and the roads dry there. not so much for the eastern seaboard, though, where roads are likely to be wet today as well as up and around the great lakes and central arizona. if you're flying, storm-related airport delays most likely in charlotte, miami and chicago. we're going to return to our top story right now and hillary clinton and donald trump squaring off last night in a fiery debate. >> some of the exchanges were especially contentious. the candidates made bold claims about several issues but not everything they said was entirely accurate so let's go to abc's byron pitts for a fact check. >> reporter: these are two candidates accused of stretching the truth in the past and they went at each other hard over honesty. perhaps the most intense
exchange of the evening, who started the birther campaign, the lie that lingered for years that president obama was not born in the u.s. trump says it wasn't him. he simply cleared it up. >> i was the one that got him to produce the birth certificate and i think i did a good job. secretary clinton also fought it. >> reporter: our fact checkers found that statement by trump is false. the two clashed over trump's wealth. he said his father once gave him a loan for a million dollars to start his business. clinton said it was 14 million. >> donald was very fortunate in his life. and that's all to his benefit. he started his business with $14 million borrowed from his father. >> reporter: our abc news fact checkers concluded yes and no. in addition to the million he admits to a casino license disclosure from 1985 shows that trump did take $14 million in loans from his father's companies. on the issue of nuclear weapons -- >> he has said repeatedly that he didn't care if other nations
got nuclear weapons, japan, south korea, even saudi arabia. >> reporter: that fact, well, it's also a yes and no. donald trump has taken different positions on the issue. another contentious exchange, comments trump has made in the past about women. >> someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers, who has -- >> i never said that. >> reporter: according to our fact checkers that comment by trump was also false. in the end the only question that remains, did either candidate change the minds of any voters? we won't know that fact until november. byron pitts, abc news, new york. well, next up the vice presidential candidates, well, they have their debate a week from tonight. but first tim kaine and mike pence will have their say later this morning on "good morning america." you don't want to miss that. a young man rescued after more than a week at sea is due to arrive in boston later today. nathan carman was in an inflatable raft when he
was picked up by a chinese freighter off martha's vineyard. carman told authorities he was on a fishing trip with his mother when their boat sank but his mother disappeared and the coast guard has now called off the search for her. the washington monument is closed indefinitely because of ongoing problems with its elevator. it keeps breaking down and the problem started before the earthquake several years ago. that forced major structural repairs on the monument. the monument won't re-open until that elevator can be replaced. all right, time for sports now and there was a track meet that kind of looked more like a football game last night. >> yes, the high-storing highlights now from espn. good morning, america. he's kenny. i'm neil. >> here we are, monday night football, falcons already up in the third quarter. matt ryan, a little fake, tevin coleman, nobody got him. and he's going places. down to the 6. falcons will score. in fact, coleman is the guy who scored next, it's 35-17. saints are getting beat up, 38-25. there's still time for drew brees to get intercepted by deion jones going the other way.
this kid is from louisiana. went to lsu, goes 90 on in, falcons go on to win, 45-32. saints are 0-3. >> stan sad. cleveland/detroit. cleveland up 4-3. top 7, roberto perez off justin williams, eat at jimmy johns. >> i'll be there next monday and tuesday. >> 3 for 4, 2 rbi. cleveland up 5-3. cody allen, strikes out cameron maven, terry francona gets a champagne shampoo. cleveland wins the division. first time they won the division since '07, first time in the playoffs since 2013 when they were in the wild card. that's all off memory. >> and to quote lester holt, your two minutes are up. >> quite a year for cleveland. congrats. all right, up next, it's the presidential debate time in "the pulse." >> question, what was donald trump doing that got plenty of people's attention. political pulse next.
... ...what we're building together... ...and could this happen again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines.
tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. the things that i consume a lot of it is very acidic. the enamel on my teeth was actually weakening. the whiteness wasn't there as much. my teeth didn't look as healthy as others. my dentist said that pronamel would help fight against that erosion that foods and drinks were causing. so it was really important to start using the pronamel. it'll be one less thing you have to worry about. pronamel is now giving me the confidence to know that i'm doing the right thing. so it's nice to know that it's as simple as that. ♪ ugh. heartburn. sorry ma'am. no burning here. try new alka-seltzer heartburn relief gummies. they don't taste chalky and work fast. mmmm. incredible. can i try? she doesn't have heartburn. new alka-seltzer heartburn relief gummies. enjoy the relief.
♪ it is time for "the pulse." and as you might expect, it is all about last night's presidential debate. >> yes, so hillary clinton and donald trump on stage for the first time. while many millions monitored the proceedings on social media so what moment got twitter going the most? >> coming in third the candidates' plans to defeat isis. trumps comments about the policing policy stop and frisk came in second, and the most tweeted moment of the night came when trump said he has a good temperament. >> so, apparently this was the most tweeted about debate ever. at the time during it 62% on twitter were tweeting about this debate. >> breaking records all around.
and it's always interesting to see what kind of issues social media will focus on. we just looked at the top three but there was another one that's making the rounds this morning. trump's sniffles during the debate completely lit up twitter and social media. take a look. >> what they're doing -- so unless -- an example of mexico -- system, agreement. is that okay? good. she made the agreements better. people that are unbelievably happy and that love me. >> the montage, so the #sniffle quickly became popular. someone even started a twitter account called trump's sniff with some pretty amusing memes, as well. >> i didn't even notice it, but apparently colbert also made reference to it, so lots of people talking about trump's sniffle this morning. and the debate came after about 18 months of campaigning, so you would think most of the basics about the candidates are pretty well known. >> yep. >> like, say, how their names are spelled. >> exactly, and hillary clinton has been out there for several years. so take a look at this. that's where the ticket comes
in. do you see what's wrong with this? tickets to the event spelled hillary clinton's name with just one "l," the hillary. she spells it with two, of course. >> now, the organizers say the mistake happened only on commemorative tickets, not on official ones. no word yet on who produced those commemorative tickets, but maybe they'll be collector's items now even more so. >> perhaps. let's hope nobody at hofstra university where the event was held. >> no. more news after this. i want my blood sugar to stay in control. so i asked about tresiba®. ♪ tresiba® ready ♪ where the event was held. >> no. more news after this. even longer than 24 hours. i want to trim my a1c. ♪ tresiba® ready ♪ tresiba® provides powerful a1c reduction. releases slow and steady. works like your body's insulin. when my schedule changes... i want something that delivers. ♪ tresiba® ready ♪
